What an honour for chef’s creative thinking

A chef at a hotel in Inverness-shire has been named Creative Chef of the Year at Scottish Food Awards 2018.

Links House head chef Javi Dominguez Santos was crowned with the title at the recent Scottish Food Awards held in the beautiful King’s Hall in Edinburgh.

Many of Scotland’s food stars were been recognised at the Scottish Food Awards 2018 which celebrate and reward the very best in Scottish food and the specialist Chef’s working in Scotland’s finest hotels and restaurants.

The Scottish Food Awards are designed to reward Scotland’s chefs, restaurants and service professionals. They also shine the spotlight on the local towns which provide an exceptional culinary experience.
